Manta Speakers

Manta Speakers by chris luomanen from usa

designer's own words:

The Manta Speakers reject the boxes-connected-by-wires paradigm of conventional speakers. This soft fabric matt with upturned corners anchors the gesture to the tabletop while rising up from the surface at the same time. Its as if you swept your music under the rug, and now its coming out. The Manta Speakers would be equally at home under your computer monitor as on credenza in your dining room or the dresser in your bedroom. You can even roll it up and use it as your portable ipod speaker set for travel. The whole package measures 2" high, 5" deep and 25" wide.
